Kyle Set To Take On "Toxic Masculinity" With AXE's Senior Orientation Program

The 'Light of Mine' album creator partners with the grooming brand.

(AllHipHop News) It's been a big week for SuperDuperKyle. The "iSpy" hitmaker starred in the Netflix original movie The After Party which premiered on August 24.

Additionally, Kyle has announced he's teaming with the AXE male grooming brand for National Bullying Prevention Month. The second annual Senior Orientation workshops will address "toxic masculinity" and societal stereotypes of manhood.

"Being involved in a program like this is especially important to me because of my own personal experiences growing up. I didn't feel like I always fit in because I opted for the drama club instead of the football team," says Kyle. "Because of this, I was perceived as being more sensitive by other kids my age."

The California native continues, "Now, these are the things that have made me the person and performer that I am today. I wish I had resources like this program when I was younger to tell me that it's okay to be myself."

Kyle and poet Carlos Andrés Gómez are expected to speak at two high schools about the subject. Senior Orientation, which is part of the AXE Find Your Magic Initiative, began as a 2017 pilot program at Centennial High School in Columbus, Ohio.

"Senior Orientation inspired my school. Everyone could feel its effect in the hallways, even just in the way people talked to one another," stated Centennial student Aria Brent. "AXE is bringing an important message to young guys and girls. I'm grateful to have had a voice in it last year and continue spreading its message of positivity and inclusiveness in my community."
